40 acres in Hamilton County, Illinois

$149,800 40 Acres
Property ID 1171103


When it comes to land ownership you dont have to own thousands of acres in order to kill mature whitetails. And thats what the current owner has proven the past 7 hunting seasons on this 40 acre tract. Situated in the Northwest corner of Hamilton County, Illinois, this transitional farm has produced two mature bucks 6 out of the last 7 seasons! The results speak for themselves. What makes it so good? On this 40 acres you have the three essential elements to hold and grow mature deer: food, water and cover. There are 12.5 acres of tillable land that was soybeans in 2012. A large creek splits the property in half offering a year-round water source. And the whitetails have cover in two different areas. The timber surrounding the creek has tons of thick cover (and browse) and the quail buffer strip surrounding all of the crop/CRP fields provides cover with tall grasses. This same recipe has worked for the thundering toms as well. The owner has harvested 5 mature toms, and only hunted a few seasons. Dont waste your time trying to build up a small farm, purchase one that has a PROVEN history and excellent NEIGHBORS. Give me a call to see how you can kill big deer on only 40 acres!
